Connecticut Campus Compact underwent a strategic planning process during the summer of 2011. During a daylong retreat, fifty (50) professionals from twenty-two (22) institutions of higher education across the state of Connecticut explored both statewide issues and an organizational SWOT analysis, resulting in four overarching goals for the period 2011 – 2014. The plan was approved and adopted by our Board of Directors in September 2011.
A Review of the 2011-2014 Strategic Planning Goals for Connecticut Campus Compact
Goal One: Build Connecticut Campus Compact (CTCC) as the premier higher education center for communication, networking and resource services related to public engagement in the State of Connecticut
Goal Two: Facilitate both private and public rewarding of engaged scholarship, necessarily involving its inclusion within institutional strategic planning, faculty and staff recruitment, and faculty promotion and tenure
Goal Three: Develop the capacity of students to succeed both academically and as engaged citizens in their communities
Goal Four: Maximize the quality and impacts delivered by campus-community partnerships, and provide a local and national platform to highlight change
In 2011 we developed three Advisory Committees and a Governance TaskForce to assist us in delivering on goals laid out in our 2011-2014 Strategic Plan. The following documentation and publications have resulted from the work of the committees and taskforce to date:
